Total time: 1 1/2 hours | Serves 3 to 4
Note: Fans of the Middle Eastern dip baba ghannouj like the smoky flavor of its star ingredient: roasted eggplant. This is a really smoky eggplant salad. Globe eggplant is awkward here--the slices take up a lot of space in a smoker and tend to fall through the grill as they soften.
- 4 long Chinese eggplants or 6 Japanese eggplants
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 cup plain yogurt
Step 1Peel the eggplants and slice in half. Sprinkle with salt and let drain in a colander for 20 to 30 minutes. Wipe them off and arrange them on the smoker grill. Smoke at 225 degrees for 1 hour.
Step 2Remove the eggplant from the smoker, chop coarsely and pulse in a food processor with the garlic and yogurt until the mixture moves smoothly but is not yet pureed.
